Everyone is required to stay home except to perform essential functions. If you must go outside, please stay more than 6 feet apart from others not in your household unit (or “cocoon”). This practice is called social or physical distancing. Not sure how to calculate 6 feet? It’s the standard length of a dog leash! (Distancing from your furry friend not required. The information is presented for illustrative purposes only.)

MARCH 27 CORRECTION: access to parks, beaches and open space
Our March 27 status update referenced an earlier Public Health Order regarding access to parks, beaches, campgrounds, and open spaces. The update should have read “closed to motorized access” (versus closed to non-motorized access). We apologize for this typo.
Residents may access local parks by foot, bicycle or other non-motorized access. But this does not mean driving to a nearby neighborhood to park and then walk into your favorite open space. You should seek outdoor opportunities close to home: if it requires you to get into your car, it’s too far.
This order was issued due to high volumes of non-essential travel to popular destinations. Our ability to flatten the curve is dependent on residents self-isolating in their place of residence; minimizing excursions except for necessary physical activity. Residents who leave their house for essential activities must follow social distancing requirements (greater than 6 feet). We are depending on Marin County residents following these orders to prevent a surge in Emergency Room visits and hospitalizations and protect our health care resources.
